New cards help cons play Poker    August 22, 2008


Inmates in prisons and jails across the United States have a new way to play their favorite card games, including Poker. The new cards that they are being issued have the names and the faces of people relating to unsolved crimes that have occurred across the country.

The cards were designed to spark conversation amongst the inmates and to hopefully generate new leads in unsolved crimes.

Investigators have run into a brick wall in many of the unsolved murders that have occurred across the country and many times they simply don't know where to turn for more information. They are hoping that by putting the names, faces, as well as some very descript circumstances of the crimes committed on the cards, they might be able to jog the memory of an inmate that might have information that can crack the case. These cards have been put into widespread use to great affect in New York State, as well as in Florida. The cards focus primarily on missing persons cases with their families left searching for answers.

While some inmates are uncomfortable looking into the eyes of homicide victims, or children that have been missing for several decades, while they are trying to play a relaxing game of Poker while passing the time, the cards have proven useful in several cases leading investigators in entirely new directions.

The inmates that go in and out of the jail systems have often times lived their entire lives on the very streets that these victims are from. The inmates might not even know that many times they have information that can bring closure to a family that they have never met.

Poker has always been a driving force in American society and this is just another chapter in what Poker has done for the lives of the people that it touches. Without these cards, which will be in their third printing soon, untold lives would forever remain shattered.
